Atlantic Health System – Mount Sinai School of Medicine fellowship in Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery
Program Director – Patrick Culligan MD
The fellowship began in 2005 and was granted ABOG/AUA Board approval in 2012. We received ACGME Board approval in 2013. The program is based out of Morristown Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center- two large tertiary care hospitals in Northern New Jersey (close to Manhattan). The outpatient Urology rotation and the graduate-level research courses occur at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in Manhattan.
Fellows develop excellent skills in patient care, research, and education. Our program offers a comprehensive approach to clinical evaluation and management of women with disorders of the pelvic floor including urinary and fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, defecatory dysfunction and voiding dysfunction. A balance of surgical and non-surgical management is stressed. Surgical management emphasizes vaginal and laparoscopic minimally invasive techniques – including vast experience in robotic-assisted surgery. Rotations with other specialties such as urology & colorectal surgery are in place. The colorectal surgery experience happens in Morristown, and the Urologic surgical experience happens at Overlook Medical center (in Summit NJ).
Our Division has a very active clinical research program with a dedicated a full-time clinical research nurse. Fellows are mentored as they develop their own original research ideas, and we have a strong research infrastructure to support these projects. Basic science / genetics research mentorship is provided by Dr. Richard T. Scott Jr., M.D. (one of the founding members of RMA – a leading reproductive endocrinology practice and fellowship program based in Morristown). Fellows may present their research at any scientific meeting of their choice.
Our program is designed to prepare fellows for successful careers in academic medicine, private practice – or anything in between.
